i was shocked, didnt believe what i am seeing, and happy at the same time, happy that i gave birth to a lovely child who will be needing my attention from that moment till today and forever

first time I felt the absolute opposite of how i thought i would. I was (to put it mildly) pretty pissed off with everyone, including this little baby, for the length of time & the lack of control i had & just everything (through the birth). then when I looked down at her & she looked absolutely nothing like me, just all her father I wanted to cry & didn't want to even hold her, especially when I saw that it looked like she was a ginger head (no offense to red-heads). Took me a little while to bond. Now, I wouldn't change her for the world, & shes blonde.

Second baby, I really wanted a boy & was adament that I wanted a dark haired baby, like me, so that people would believe that he/she was mine. I was overjoyed when I gave birth to a little black haired boy. I just wanted to wrap him in my arms & not let go.

I think second time around is easier as you have different expectations cos you know what to expect, & to expect the unexpected.

I had so many mixed emotions i was excited and thought wow i just witnessed a miracle the position i was in i could pretty much see alot but at the same time i thought i would feel closer but it was like I was geting know this little gift all over again i always had it pictured i would cry and just be an emotional mess of happiness and i was hapy sooo delighfuly happy...but i never cried? I was nervous with the full on realization that now i really am taking care of this precious little girl and i was affraid i would break her if i touched her wrong :) first time mom i guess but i was excited happy but shocked of how i didnt react the way i thought i should have i guess??
